If a stadium is needed the Wilf's, the NFL, the MN Vikings, & the MN Vikings Fans can pay for it as they will be using it. They can rent it out on the other 350 for whatever they want. WIN-WIN.

That's good news about Toby Gardenhire. It turns out the Twins are in need of a catcher who can hit over .215.

It will be good to see Coach Guentzel back with the Gophers, I think he will help the program. I also wish Coach Hill the best in the future.

I hope the state shutdown does not effect all the tourists who want to come to Target Field, take the tour and check out the Twins Two World Series Championship trophies. The vikings do not need to worry about such things because there is NO World Championship trophies to see, just an empty trophy case and signs on the the offices of their owners that say; "Back in New Jersey for the summer. Will back in time for the Dome opener in September".

Not true Sid, if anything the Wilf's and Bageley are pushing even harder. These clowns actually had the nerve to suggest that the state include their percieved need for a new billion dollar stadium in on the 5+ billion dollar budget deficit. It is just incredible how out to lunch these dillusional multi-millionaires are and how little they actually care about anyone other than themselves!!!

Well, now let's see if the queens hold true on their threat to leave if they do not get their stadium deal. I am guessing not. Way to go GOP hold out till the Gov gives in. Time to cut spending and not raise taxes.
